The Odyssey Club is the social organization for all students enrolled in the Honors Scholars Program at High Point University. It is composed of and directed entirely by honors students. Meetings are held periodically, and a variety of activities are planned throughout the year. The Odyssey Club encourages a healthy balance between social affairs and academics.
The Odyssey Club organizes the annual Spring trip for all Honors students interested in attending a weekend getaway to locations like Savannah, Georgia; Washington, D.C.; and Williamsburg, Virginia. Students enjoy a weekend of camaraderie with each other while being away from the rigorous academics for a few days.
The residents of Finch Hall are actively engaged in living and learning together in High Point University’s Honors Scholar housing community. This community is an academically focused, resourceful living community. The students have access to a full-time Faculty-in-Residence to discuss academically related topics, to provide research help, and to create hall programs designed with an experiential learning focus.
The Salon is a key program within the community. It features a free-form space for intellectual engagement and creative play, sponsored by the Honors Scholar Program and open to the entire campus community. Salon is about intellectual cross-pollination as a mode of entertainment! All faculty, students, staff, and guests are welcome. It’s informal: coming late isn’t a problem, nor is leaving early.
Past Theme Topics:
